Abstract

Information integration of the supply chain for the manufacturing industry is essential because a competent and promising company needs an efficient information system to communicate with its customers, supplies, and partners within the entire supply chain. In this research, collaborative and event-driven Supply Chain Information System (SCIS) is developed by using the mobile object technology. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is applied to analyze and design the SCIS Framework which contains two major components: Information Coordinator Component (ICC) and Agent Component (AC). The ICC acts as the information integration manager. It manages all the ACs and establishes proper event channels for them to exchange information. Each member within the supply chain needs to possess an AC such that it can utilize the SCIS to exchange information with the other members. An application example is constructed and its corresponding system integration and testing procedure is demonstrated. From this demonstration result, it is believed that this SCIS Framework provides a collaborative, event-driven, object-oriented, and agent-based infrastructure for the supply chain members to mutually exchange information efficiently.
